Update: Final Status of HB 2542
In addition to the political hurdles in Olympia this legislative session, the bill to increase the funding and extend the sunset date of the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program could not overcome the revenue forecast that was released on February 16, which indicated another $68 million budget shortfall this year. While this is a disappointment to all involved, we know we did important work this session. To see and share the full piece, go here
Upcoming in April: 

Coverage of local arts organizations and milestones!
